MotivMFG is Samuel Wei, founder of Radiance Blue and the pioneer of the heritage market in China; and Daniel Gu, a third-generation tailor and designer. Together they combine old-world tailoring from antique German manuals with workwear production techniques. Constant research into the garment making techniques around the world informs their design with the goal of creating “recreations” rather than “reproductions”

The Free Pleat Trousers are MotivMFG's answer for a "one size fits all" trouser. Featuring two large inverted pleats attached to an internal drawstring waist (that peeks out to close up externally at the front of the pants) that can be used to adjust the pants. This free pleat system allows each size to fit and drape correctly across an 8" change in the waistband. The cut is a wide, straight leg, which pairs well with the adjustable drawstring waist and lightweight fabric, making these an ideal pant for warm weather, or just lounging around comfortably.

These are sewn up in a natural (undyed) 100% wool HBT fabric. They're lined almost fully through the leg, ensuring your legs stay comfortable as well as warm thanks to the flowy, drapey wool.

Fits true to size - take the size whose smallest measurement is closest to your true waist size. Wash cold, hang dry.
